A direct consequence of the growth of padel among athletes of all ages is the need for new courts, with increasingly innovative characteristics, starting with the surface. Synthetic turf is one of the most popular materials used to make padel courts, with considerable advantages and reduced maintenance requirements that allow the court’s excellent performance to be maintained over long periods.
Today, when building or renovating a padel court, a synthetic turf is almost always a first choice, which has taken the place of previously used materials, such as porous or polished concrete and synthetic resins.
Indeed, artificial turf is made to offer optimal biomechanical characteristics: elasticity, shock absorption and homogeneous ball bounce. Installing a synthetic turf surface for padel provides uniform angular and vertical ball bounce values on the entire court, in all periods of the year, ensuring comfort and high-level performance for athletes.
MONDO Tufting's research and production centre in Borja (Spain) designs and manufactures MONDO synthetic turfs specifically for padel, suitable for all levels of play, from amateur to professional.

All MONDO synthetic turf for padel is designed to maximise the durability of the fibres over time and to maintain constant biomechanical and playing conditions. In order to ensure an excellent quality of the court, it is necessary to carry out regular maintenance. Let's take a closer look at the main maintenance operations for an artificial turf padel court.
The maintenance of synthetic turf padel surfaces aims to safeguard the technical properties of the court over time, ensuring constant performance values of the system and helping athletes to achieve excellent performance.
The maintenance operations of a padel court, to be programmed according to the type of filament installed in the court, are divided into two types:
